Deadwood

Deadwood has finally come to a channel I can watch. I have heard so much about it, particularly from archbishopm and kalypso_v. I thoroughly enjoy it. Also H sits and watches it with me (and he hardly watches any TV, least of all non-fiction). Also it keeps coming to my mind, which is a good sign in a film or a TV show.

My favourite character is Wild Bill Hickock, because he's played by Keith Carradine, whom I like a lot.
But looking on IMDB I see he isn't in the permanent cast list so I guess he dies or goes soon. Shame.

Carradine was in one of my all time favourite films: Southern Comfort (directed by Walter Hill, who directed Deadwood) with Powers Boothe (who is also in Deadwood). Southern Comfort is about a band of Louisiana National Guardsmen who wander off the beaten path and get their asses kicked by the locals. It's somewhere between Deliverance and the Blair Witch Project.

What I like about it is the friendship between Carradine and Boothe. They recognise each other immediately, and without any overt comment, as the only two intelligent guys in the company, and I like the way that works out and develops.
